Flying Brick gets Dan on a BMW.
« on: June 19, 2020, 08:40:21 pm »
It is with great gratitude that I am posting these photos of a completed K100 BMW, nicknamed "Flyin' brick" because of the rectangular cylinder head protruding from the side of the bike.

Thanks Chris + team!!

Is this the one that was standing in Chris' office?
It's the end of the road as we know it and I feel fine.

No, Dan. If you're gonna do it, do it right. Cylinder head on one side only makes the bike look unbalanced. What happens when you fall the other way?  :lol8:

Danie, ek weet jy dink dit, maar is te goed gemanierd om dit te s, so ek sal maar namens jou.

Dis die enigste ordentlike geboude BMW ooit!   :lol8:
